Dallas Cowboys In The Hall of Fame Game

I want to convey to the reader just how amazing Larry Allen’s talent really was. In 1992 and 1993 the Dallas Cowboys were the Super Bowl Champions. The best in the whole world. In 1994, as a rookie, he started 10 games for a 2 time defending champion. This is coming from a Division 2 school that no longer even plays football, Sonoma State. The odds of a Division 2 player starting on a 2 time defending Super Bowl Champion lies somewhere between slim and none.

Allen overcame those slim odds and became a legend. You give me 4 Larry Allen’s and a Center, the only OL position he did not play, and I will never lose. He could simply blow people up like no one else ever did. I noted when he was elected to the Hall of Fame that Hall of Famers were in awe of Larry. When he blocked people, they disappeared. Whether it was in a pile of bodies or clear off the screen, they disappeared. He is the only player in NFL history that professional athletes were genuinely afraid of.

When he was introduced fellow inductee, Jonathon Ogden, himself a dominant Offensive Lineman, said that he knows of no one else who literally scared people. He did not say much. Larry Allen let his game talk for him. Today he will become the 11th original Dallas Cowboys player in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He joins fellow Dallas Cowboys Bob Lilly, Roger Staubach, Mel Renfro, Tony Dorsett, Randy White, Bob Hayes, Rayfield Wright, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin in Canton. It is well deserved.

Bill Parcells, in contrast to Larry Allen’s noted silence, is one of the truly great talkers of all time. He joins Tom Landry as a Hall of Fame Head Coach. Though the majority of his legend was his years as the New York Giants Head Coach, his time in Dallas is appreciated by most Cowboys fans after he turned around a team that had gone from glory to gory. Parcells and Allen were together in Dallas for 3 seasons. Now their legend will live on forever. Well deserved.

    Hey Burke, I think Al Davis is dead, so there’s an original AFL Team owner out. Woody Johnson wasn’t the founding owner of the Jets, either.

    “There are 32 teams in the NFL”. Wow… no kidding?

    Thank God this isn’t recycled from one of your moronic “Football 101″ Zone posts again. I’d rather hear about you chasing criminals while barefoot or jumping your motorcycle over a cop car.
